Hi All, I cant wait to finish my 131 Tiger missions. You get a pack of 50 x 5 xp bonus missions, which allow you to get x5 crew xp every time you win a battle and are in the top 10. Unfortunately, Not only is this Tiger not very good, being cubed in shape, easy to pen, slow manoeuvrable, If your lucky, you only get matched up to tier 8s :hiding:​.

So winning 50 games, becomes a task and a half !!!! The bad news, is you can only do these missions in the 131, so swapping your crew for the bumper experience tends to be detrimental to your game play. Going from 3x crew xp to 1x crew exp :playing:, anyhoo folks only 22 win games to go :bush:

 

Respect to ALL,Cheers.

Tiger 131 is OP, I have 100% WR in it and average damage far exceeding its HP.

Right... last time I checked the 131 was actually fairly balanced, being a premium tank and all. It's not that bad (when you ignore the fact that the Germans had a severe tungsten shortage). :rolleyes:

qpranger it would help if you also stated that you had a TOTAL of 3 games in it - 100% win rate in 3 games does not prove anything fella. Just tell the WHOLE truth next time so we can understand the context

He's a mischievous little rodent but he never seems to mean any harm. I knew straight away when I read that he was operating from a low sample. I'm actually surprised it's not just one game!

My money was on one game as well :)

So 9 battles in the Tiger 131 tonight and just to prove a point about how useless MM is at the moment, I had the following tiers: 7 were tier 8, 2 were tier 7 and nil were tier 6 - ever get the feeling that WG are a bunch of shysters! They happily take your money off you for a premium tank and then they give you such crap MM that it just isn't worth playing that tank - totally lost respect for WG !!!!!

 

I do not expect preferential MM, I just expect FAIR MM, and WG are incapable of providing that.

 

This makes the whole WOT playing experience really unpleasant.

I like it, its not to slow, it carries a metric crapton of ammo allowing you to go basically 50/50 with gold ammo and still never fire a gold round if you don't need too.

I don't like the aim time on it, for a support heavy it could do with a slight aimtime buff otherwise its a solid allround tank, not OP and certainly not underpowered... it is basically a balanced prem tank.... god forbid.

Got a Pool's Medal in it a few days ago - my first one ever.

Definitely doesn't feel underpowered to me.

I knew what qpranger was saying and I have his posts blocked.  The guy is about as funny as a fart in a space suit.

 

I believe the 131 is pretty much like the  heavy tank VI.  I have 58% in it after 300 + battles (with the old MM)  balanced tank on the whole.

OP complaints about 131 are lol...

 

All his complaints aren't exactly hidden, Japanese Tiger has been out long enough and there is plenty of online reviews etc so you can spend with both eyes open.

 

I'm enjoying mine, doing crap as I'm not used to a HT like it. Don't folk do the whole self reflection thing and ponder when they die instead of blaming their tank...

And the 131 seems to be an arty magnet as well, too slow and crappy mobility makes it hard to dodge the Edited. :(

Ughhh, what a surprise.

 

There totally aren't tanks ingame (and on the test-server) with virtually identical statts that one could test before buying.....

I like what he has to say :) 

 

As for farting in a space suit... people always smell their own, Or it works like this, you fart and say you fart, and people hang around and say "yeah you did" 

 

End of the story is we want to smell farts.

Very few of us here have put on a space suit, or are likely to put on a space suit.

 

But I am guessing quite a few of us have worn a Noddy suit.

You can throw in my 88% after 9 battles.

 

And if you want to add 60 battles in the near identical HT#6

 

Tank seems perfectly fine to me.

Wow I have a 100% WR in it as well but that doesn't mean it still isn't crap. Slow, paper armor, gun is pretty meh as well. Rudy craps all over this tank.

Rudy is excellent but no reason why both can't be enjoyed for their different play style. But yeah given if I had to pick between the two...

 

Not sure if I'm playing the same tank as some of the guys here. 131 really isn't that slow

You also own the HT. no 6 so you knew what you were getting into, in fact you seem to be doing better with the 131. With the competition that is at T6 (Cromwell B, Rudy, Type 64) the tank falls quite short, but after 460 battles with the HT no 6 I can say I found it quite alright for the tier.
